On July 1, 2015, Casa Esperanza Homeless Shelter merged with PATH to become PATH Santa Barbara. We are very happy to be a part of the Santa Barbara community, working to rebuild lives and strengthen neighborhoods.

In Santa Barbara we provide a variety of services for our neighbors experiencing homelessness that include employment, outreach, housing navigation, interim housing, and rapid rehousing.
